Dear Louis C.K.,

You the effing best.

In your super funny discussion of race and white privilege with Jay Leno last Friday, you had the temerity to tell America something that black people have felt for years: “If you’re black, you get to complain more.” Of course, you’re not saying that white people don’t get to complain; they do. But they don’t have 250 years of slavery and its immediate consequences to deal with. So thanks for that.

Louis C.K. for president. Ferreal.

Love you,

P.S. Thanks also for putting Americans to task that one time on Conan. That was great too. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
